Joscelin Yeo (The Couch Episode)–Inspirational Life Lessons after Competition
Joscelin Yeo (The Couch Episode) – Inspirational Life Lessons after Competition
Former national swimming champions Joscelin Yeo and her brother Leonard of Singapore, sit down to discuss life after competition in one of The Couch episode at Mediacorp’s Channel 5.
I seldom watch TV, I prefer to read books or listen to audio books. When I came from work, I managed to watch a replay episode of The Couch and got the chance to record some portion using my phone, HTC Wildfire. I don’t have much knowledge about her but I’ve managed to watch how she dominated some of her competitions at SEA Games. I thought this must be a good time to learn some success habits and life skills.
Here are some good insights that we can apply whatever fields of endeavor that we have.
1. You have to enjoy the process and not to be so tunnel vision on the result that you lose yourself in the process. I think when you love what you’re doing then the pleasure of the process follows.
2. On fulfillment, for example she had a 2 and half minutes race long or even less but she spent 4 or more years of training just to get one shot of that game.
If she didn’t enjoy the process and didn’t get the results that she wanted in the end, it will be very dejecting for her. Along the way she managed to learn perseverance, determination, discipline, and learning more about herself that made the journey worthwhile.
So many people had asked but she can’t remember what her best time was for a particular event, how many medals she had won, or what was her record breaking time? Because at the end of the day these things does not matter to her, what matter most is the friendship that you formed, the relationship that you built, the life journeys that you’ve taken and learned from. She found that these things gave her so much value than just the results itself.
